I'm weaving on a 4 harness Gilmore for my Fiber Arts class. The assignment is a 3-week project that should be relief or sculptural in quality. I want to use computer wires, the internal parts, the rainbow ones, and I want to create something that is both "homey" and made with these materials but I'm really stuck. Computers have always been a part of my home life and I want to express this.

Any ideas? Embarrassed

I've thought of doing a "Home Sweet Home" motif with inlay, of a rug (too pokey), and of a lampshade but my engineering skills are far behind any workable ideas

also, should I buy this? I mean is it a good deal? I've never worked on a loom like it but the price just seems right...

And the computer wires...how creative!  Yay!  Grin

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.
